Created date: 10/06/2020, 10:18:48, Updated date: 10/06/2020, 10:50:14

We've conducted a detailed review of the BLU G50 Plus, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the BLU G50 Plus

BLU G50 Plus's size

The BLU G50 Plus is 3.0 inches (76 mm) wide, 6.2 inches (158.7 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.1 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the BLU G50 Plus, it weighs about 180 oz (180 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the BLU G50 Plus, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

BLU G50 Plus's screen

The BLU G50 Plus has a 6.2 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the BLU G50 Plus's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of BLU G50 Plus

The 1.6GHz×8(OctaCore) processing speed of the BLU G50 Plus is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The BLU G50 Plus has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the BLU G50 Plus rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

BLU G50 Plus's storage capacity

The BLU G50 Plus has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the BLU G50 Plus is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of BLU G50 Plus

The BLU G50 Plus has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The BLU G50 Plus comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

Overall assessment of BLU G50 Plus

The BLU G50 Plus is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
